NEWARK - Family and friends gathered on the Newark street where two brothers were gunned down last week to pray for an end to violence in the city.

Jahlil Henry and Fuquan Davis were sitting in a parked car in front a relative's home in the Weequaic section of the city, when someone opened fire on the vehicle.

"We knew who the real Jahlil was," says Marques-Aquil Lewis. "The basketball player, a loving person. We all fall short of the goal... He just fell short and was trying to pick himself back up."

No arrests have been made in the double murder.
